E-mail queries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We read every query but only respond to those we are interested in pursuing. Because of security concerns we do not open or respond to any e-mails that have attachments, so please be sure to put your query letter in the body of your e-mail. Please also paste your synopsis and the first five pages of your manuscript into the body of your e-mail.
Snail Mail Queries
